Creepy Eyes Punch Art

Tags

, ,

I think it is extremely important to find multiple uses for my stamping tools.  Just like kitchen tools, if you’re going to invest in one, then you need to get as much use and variety out of that investment as possible.  This is why I love punch art so much, and why I love today’s Sisters in Stamping theme – PUNCHES!

With October just around the corner, and my dd constantly asking if she can put on  her costume, I’ve definitely been in a Halloween mindset.  But when I started looking through my inventory of punches, I was a little surprised to see that my Fox Builder Punch had an angry eyebrow!  What?!

Amazing, right?  I just love the variety of this punch!  I even used the fox face to create the eyes, trimming off the fox ears.  The hair was created with the Sprig Punch, and the teeth were done with random cuts with my Paper Snips.

SIS Sketch Challenge

, , , , ,

I love a good sketch challenge, and that is exactly what the Sisters in Stamping gave us this week.  Truthfully, it was me challenging the other designers but it wasn’t all that easy  for me either.  LOL!

Here is the original sketch – SIS #1SIS Sketch Challenge

I created this sketch two months ago, and I’m fairly certain that when I designed it I had an idea on how my final project would look.  But for the life of me I couldn’t recall that original idea. :/  So, like the other designers I started from scratch as if someone else had done the sketch!

With Fall upon us, I decided to pull out my Seasonal Chums stamp set and made a Halloween card.  These fun characters are intended as gift tags, but make a great focal point for cards too.

I used a variety of inks and an Aqua Painter to color in the Jack-O-Lantern.  I love all the different ways that Stampin’ Up! offers to add color to stamped images.  What is your favorite method of “coloring” your projects?

Designer Series Paper (DSP)…a great start to a beautiful project!  These papers provide thousands of beautifully drawn art and real images specifically designed to go with our color families and stamp sets.

This lovely card features the Animal Expedition DSP.  This paper was created to coordinate with a number of SU! products – Animal Outings stamp set, Animal Friends thinlits dies, Animal Expedition carstock pack, Leaf Ribbon, and Frames Elements.  But I chose to focus on the DSP alone for this card.

This cute rhinoceros makes the perfect focal point layered over the white side of a colored doily.  I decided to fussy cut a bird for extra dimension sitting on the horn of his rhino friend.  Super cute!

SIS Color Combo

Tags

, , , , ,

I love taking on a new color combination challenge.  It really makes me think of colors in a new way.  This week’s Sisters In Stamping designer challenge was to create a project using these three colors:  Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, and Whisper White.

SIS Color Combo 083118

I decided these were nice summer colors.  So I pulled out my Colorful Seasons stamp set and started to experiment.  The card layout itself was almost immediate, but I’m not sure if this is one I came up with on my own or if I saw a sketch elsewhere.

Summer thinking of you card / Kissing technique / Timeless Textures stamp set / Colorful Seasons stamp set / Timeless Textures stamp set / SIS Color Combo: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I used the kissing technique to apply flowers to my chair backing.  This is probably the kind of summer beach chair I would buy!  The kissing technique is when you ink two stamps in different colors, then stamp one stamp on top of the other to transfer a form of texture to your final image.  Splitcoaststampers provides a great tutorial here.
